City of Altoona, Resident Responsibilities
City code violations for lawn, sidewalk, and snow removal can end up costing much more than anyone would like to pay. After the fine, the city can select any company with high service rates to clean up your property. For an average city lawn, after a code violation is issued and handled the home owner can end up with a $250.00 + bill for a basic lawn service.
Don't let this happen to you, Lego Services can protect you from these violations for a fraction of the cost! The city is not concerned with the reason for the violation. If you are unable to perform the duties due to age, health disabilities, or relocation you are still under obligation to keep your property within the cities guidelines. We have already helped dozens of local customers, and we are ready to help you as well.
The following are resident responsibilities that Lego Services can help you maintain.
Grass and weeds cleanup.
Residents are responsible for keeping their grass mowed and keeping weeds pulled or trimmed on their property and along the Right of Way in front of their property. This includes the area around the sidewalks.
Residents are responsible for maintaining the sidewalks on and around their properties. This includes keeping them free of stones, gravel, anti-skid and leaves and sweeping them regularly with a broom. Residents are encouraged to sweep stones, gravel and anti skid beyond the curb onto the side of the road for the street sweeper to pick up.
Residents are responsible for keeping all sidewalks clear of snow and ice. This includes vacant properties as well. An 18" path must be cleared within 24 hours of the end of the snowfall. In the event it has become so hard that it cannot be removed sand or another abrasive should be added to keep it safe.
Tree maintenance and pruning.
Residents are responsible for maintaining the trees on their property as well as the trees on the Right of Way. Trees that need to be trimmed should be trimmed by a licensed arborist. If you need to remove a tree that is on the Right of Way you must get permission from the Shade Tree Commission and complete an application.
The City of Altoona requires all residents to have residential garbage and recyclable collection. If you live in an apartment complex you or your Landlord must have service. It is illegal to throw or deposit upon any public street or sidewalk, or upon any private property, any type of litter or household trash. All trash must be in containers with lids and picked up weekly. Residents may move their trash to the curb no earlier than 6:00 p.m. the evening before collection. Recycling must be in a separate container.
